Mount Robson Provincial Park has several fishing locations.
Portal and Whitney Lakes contain small Rainbow Trout, while Dolly Varden, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout, Kokanee and Whitefish populate Yellowhead and Moose Lakes. Salmon fishing on the Fraser River in nearby Valemount is also an option.
Beyond the park's boundaries, one of the easiest fishing spots to access is Kinbasket Lake, a reservoir extending from the southern edge of Valemount to the Revelstoke dam. Kinbasket is an excellent location for Rainbow Trout, Bull Trout, and Whitefish, which congregate in the many creeks that feed the reservoir. Boat launches for Kinbasket are found along the Canoe Forest Road, about 24km/15mi south of Valemount.
Located east of Tete Jaune on Highway 16, Little Lost Lake usually provides a good catch of Rainbow Trout. Shere Lake, 33km/20.5mi Northwest of Valemount, has plenty of Brook Trout.
